I'm not too sure, hopefully someone can fill us in.

Would be a really great price if it did.

Nice specs at this price - heat added.

Got a Samsung blu-ray player, which I play on an LG 50" full HD Plasma. Yes, there is an improvement with Blu-ray, but not massively so (although it does vary between films), but when you're immersed in a film, you do actually forget whether it is blu-ray or DVD, which I think speaks for itself!!

Blu-ray is so over-hyped (and the players overpriced) in my humble opinion, but no doubt I'll be shot down in flames for expressing so!!

I recently purchased this player from Costco for about £70.

I thought because it was Panasonic I could expect a player that didnt just play blu ray's but had a decent menu to navigate the system...not like when you buy a cheap brand...but i was not too impressed with the menu system on this player....there are some compatibility issues as well with the playing of MKV files...it plays some and not others....i believe its something to do with the resolution in the mkv file and/or the codec used to compress the audio....if i could turn back time i would have spent a little extra and got a Sony/LG. I have gotten around the video compatiblity problem by streaming films through to the player with the built in DLNA. I recommend using software called Serviio for this. ..i tried a few DLNA media servers....Servio has an iplayer plugin that lets you stream iplayer content directly to the blu ray player

pros: it's cheap, free delivery to ireland, it's Amazon

cons: it's not Sony

Wow. Amazing price for a blu ray player. HOT for me.

No WiFi so no iplayer of 4od

you should try watching something like david attenbourghs planet earth on bluray, then tell us there is no difference in quality.

Sorry but having had Sony & Panny over the years, I've become a Panny fanboy over the junk that Sony currently sell so it would be a pro for me not a con

It very much depends on how big your screen is, how far away you sit, and how good your eyes are. If you have a pokey flat screen which you watch from across the room, and you're getting on - you won't see much.

If you've got a projector and blow up the picture to 3 metres wide, you certainly notice the difference. Indeed you start to notice where the focus puller on a film wasn't too hot in getting accurate focus.

Blu Ray is worth it to ensure you've got the best quality content, and for the better sound it delivers.

ummmm its only £64.95 at Richer Sounds and thats not even them doing it on an offer !!!!

No wifi doesn't mean no iplayer, theres always good old fashioned cables! whether this player does have iplayer or not is a different question, one i don't know!

Love the way that the three people(so far) that don't own Blu-Ray players modded you up :P

How the hell does that make it not a good deal, it's still an excellent price for blu-ray

Can anybody tell me if this player is multi-region hackable? (DVDs, not Blu-ray). A lot of mine are R1 so this is a must. Thanks!

I've noticed not all HDTV's are equal. 1080p on one tv can look much worse on a different model/make at 1080p. Mine? it looks sooooo much better than standard def I'd do anything to watch something in HD over SD now. Hell, I even watched Tron on this and my eyeballs sucked it up... If I watched it in SD or a poorer set, it would have got turned off after 30 mins...

Oh, and yes, this been a Panny over a Sony is a MASSIVE bonus...

I understand what you are saying. I have an upscaling 1080p sony DVD player that i bought at a silly low price . It gives an excellent picture and i would think on my 32" Sony most people would struggle to tell the difference between a modern digitally filmed movie on DVD and blu-ray on my TV ( and i did try a friends Sony blu-ray). Will my next machine be blu-ray, to right it will !. The machines are now so cheap it is not worth buying another dvd player for my lounge also i may change my tv for something bigger/better so it is not worth sticking with DVD. Even Toshiba who after HD DVD throw the towel in said they would only make upscaling DVD players gave in and now make making blu-ray players.

The sound quality would probably be the biggest reason for me to switch.

Well. when my one good glass eye stays in, my eyesight is crystal clear

My eyesight is very good, don't need glasses (got them tested the other year to make sure!). I'm about 3 metres away from the screen (50" LG). My Samsung blu-ray also provides the surround sound (5.1)

As regards another posters comment regarding the sound, again what's the difference between 5.1 surround on DVD and 5.1 on Blu-ray??!! Surely it is the same, it certainly sounds it ( and yes, my ears are fine too!!!!).

I however didn't say there wasn't a difference in picture quality, there is some (yes, I like everyone else has Avatar on blu-ray). However, can you honestly say after about 20 minutes into a film, you're still thinking, wow the quality is fantastic, I can see so much more - be honest, do you ?

I await the abuse

Not abuse, but can you tell the difference between DD and DTS soundtracks if you have any DVDs with both? If not, you may need an ear test or a new surround system, although I do remember one DVD where I preferred the DD soundtrack (I can't remember the film, but the DD wasn't brilliant either).

Can't believe it's taken this long for people to get onto Sony's poor production values, they've been getting away with it for years and years now... Still, good to see though...

Thought i'd have a look and see if you'd posted it at this price a few weeks ago. I couldn't find it.

I did find a refurbished Toshiba blu ray player though.

I think i'd much rather have this one for that little bit extra.

Davies "Evo" (Wales) - See all my reviews(REAL NAME) This review is from: Panasonic DMP-BD75EB-K Ultra Fast Booting 2D Blu-Ray Disc Player (Electronics)I bought this cheapish - in price only - machine just because I wanted a bluray player for the bedroom.It's ended up in our lounge hooked up to the Onkyo sound system because it's fab. Also through the usb connection it will play any file except mp4 that I throw at it including music and movies.It also reads nfts disks fine.All in all a lovely player and well worth the £65.
